This is treated some journals As an India Xiuji of their complicity in the crime and of tigers Ris Mere cowardice. In the of fair Pliny we Are constrained to say that neither of these imputations seems to us to warranted the ? facts of the .

The enraged horse a Large Bay took the bit and ran at a furious Speed. The crowd became wild and cries that would deafen in inhabitant of pandemonium went up from hundreds of frightened mortals. The screams yells amp shouts frightened a Gay looking Gray horse Riaden one of the ladies and went off As furiously As the Bay. After a round or two the horses evidently got Over their Quot scare Quot and entered into a contest for Speed but the multitude were still frightened amp As usual lost their wits and continued to scream. The horses wont on the Bay still leading. Gra made a terrible onslaught and just As they passed our standpoint brilliantly into the Lead.

Gray did not again get the Lead although at one time his nose was laying on the Bay s quarters. About this time a daring fellow who holds a tender relation to one of the riders rushed through the crowd into the Circle and As the Bay passed going at lightning Speed caught the reins of his bridle and that instant was turning Summe saults in the air.

The lady then for the first time became alarmed and As Sho turned about to look after her As she supposed lost Lover Quot the Saddle turned Ard Down she came head Foremost towards the ground. Notwithstanding the screams that were heard before we discovered from tie noise made at this moment that the crowd had been filled with Quot pent up but a Host of Gallant Fellows blockaded the track with their bodies and the Bay was stopped Quot in his wild career Quot and the lady released from the Stirrup which she was hanging.

But the virginians had no idea of allowing any such proceeding nobody knew this was a contrivance of the abolitionists at any rate it could not permitted. So they threatened the tin workers they would arrest them and Deal summarily with them if they did not forthwith depart and the mechanics to avoid trouble concluded to go Home.

He was elected in preme judge in 1858 receiving 27,000 majority and 50,000 More votes than col. Fremont received in the same state for. Bacy and ghz sch mb1ibsbship,. Of the Madison Indian courier speaking of the indignation with hich d a my to View All pulpit discourses who seem in Jim a no Tofin cd Tiiu hot in it i Ike in fit a gift Rai ii buildings in Chicago. Chicago was Origi Lauy a swamp. When drained As much As natural level would allow the surface was not More than 12 or at most 2i inches above standing water a at that time Many parts of the City were perfect Quad Viires and in wet Many times have i a seen boards stuck up chalked on them the significant warning Quot no Bottom Quot and it woe to Tho unlucky teamster who chanced to that warning for generally his horses had to dragged out the neck. Some years ago the common Council made Tho bold but Wise resolve that they would raise the Grade of the whole City. This Hiis caused temporary inconvenience to All parties a a great loss to a few and has compelled those who had erected Good buildings to them bodily from five to eight feet. The result has been most satisfactory. It has added indescribably to the Beauty of Tho City it has enabled them to carry out a system of thorough drainage All the business streets Are perfectly dry and the health of the City has been improved immeasurably. So that this one vast improvement Chicago will become one of the most healthy and Beautiful cities in the whole Union. One of the most astonishing results of the alteration of the Grade was Tho raising of Largo buildings hotels and whole rows of Brick and Stone stores. The operation was at first looked upon with Universal suspicion and Many watched for Tho buildings thus being raised to come tumbling Down. The operation proved a perfect Success and in a Short time immense buildings were seen stuck on stilts and ascending higher every Day while at Tho same time business was carried on within As if nothing was occurring. The ii dus Operand is simple but interesting. The foundation is Laid Bare on each Side of Tho Falls trestle work of Short stiff timber.=?, both outside and partition is then erected on which rests Tho ends of Stout beams passed through the Wall every three or four feet. Under Tho timbers on which these timbers rest an immense number of Jack screws arc fixed every four or five of which require the attention of a Man. All being ready the superintendent takes his stand at some Central Point and a signal usually a shrill whistle directs the movements of the men. He continues his whistle Long enough for every Man to turn each screw one Complete round of the thread. Thus the building is raised at every Point precisely at the same moment and to Tho same extent. As the work progresses the trestle work is raised and thus the operation proceeds till the required height is attained when a new foundation is built and the of building gradually rested upon it. Tho greatest number of buildings raised at one time were the Block belonging to or. Evans on Clark Street Between Lake and Randolph their being no fewer than thirteen stores three stories High under we Iii were fixed from twelve to fifteen Hundred screws. It is probable that within the past eighteen months As much Money has been spent in raising buildings in Chicago As would build up a moderate sized City Many having Cost from fifteen to Twenty thousand dollars. And j of when Chicago revives every such investment will pay a Good interest from Tho rent of the basement. Den s great motto in repealing the British copts Lavt. If a Istir is Siri aply an in conc Niece an oppression obey it and agitate for repeal but if that Law is in opposition to god s Law then obey god rather than Man and sheer Tiluy suffer the penalty. The new Era is the name of a new Papel just started at Auburn Dekalb county. Or. George Kuhlman is editor who promises to advocate the principles of our forefathers. If will really advocate those principles we shall rejoice in his Success but we suspect Quot will not for we notice that recommends the Douglas doctrine for the territories. The Early fathers taught no such doctrines As Jar. Douglas proclaims on that subject. They passed the ordinance of l87 8 which excluded slavery from the North Western territory and at a later period when Tho popular sovereigns of Tho territory of Indiana petitioned Congress for the privilege of holding slaves these Early fathers said popular sovereignty then would have made Indiana a slave state. The Early fathers adopted the principles of excluding slavery from the territories of the United states and they adhered to it throughout. It has resulted in making not Only Indiana but Ohio Illinois Michigan Wisconsin Iowa and Minnesota free states. The Laporte Union of the 28th says one of our citizens or. James Clarks living on West main Street was a full surprised last saturday night about ten o clock finding lying on the Back porch of his House two babies. I lies were twin boys about four weeks old and carefully and warmly wrapped in a Woolen shawl and other apparel and the Side of them was also found a bundle of clothing consisting of under garments diapers amp a. Tho Little ones wore cared for during the night or. Clark s family and the next Day handed Over to trustees who would provide for them and who to d also Institute an inquiry into their Parent Quot . Lieuw conscience and penalty. Thoie is constant confusion of thought As the rightful province of Law and conscience. Some boldly Assort that Law under All circumstances must obeyed. Not Long ago even in the pulpit we heard the doctrine sternly enforced without the least qualification that All citizens Are bound to obey every Law of the land others again contend that conscience is above All Law and not on so but that a scruple is a sufficient excuse for the violation of any Law both these extreme views would totally subversive of the Well being of society. The one tramples under foot divine Law the second would destroy All human Law. What then is the True and sound position when these seem to any one to conflict that they do sometimes conflict no one can doubt. What then to it right to obey Man rather than god there is a divine Law there is a human Law and there is a conscience to take cognizance of both. It is absurd in the extreme to talk As some do about conscience being a Mere product of education As something that can a stretched and twisted to any purpose. This is the despot s Node of reasoning. Conscience is a Man s sense of right and wrong and is As much a part of his nature As Hope and fear. No parties enforced general obedience to Law More than the divine writers and yet none were More determined in their opposition to those Laws. Peter and John were placed under Law strictly forbidden to do certain things and yet they went Forth and deliberately violated that Law and when arrested and charged with this violation their prompt reply was Quot we ought to obey god rather than was this right if so Are there any circumstances which justify now a like action we answer that men must obey Law or to Content to suffer the penalty. Peter and John were beaten for their crime they suffered the penalty and itry yet they continued to violate that same Law. If Man s in a conflicts with Law a must .
